Sophie Goldberg (Omaha, Nebraska) graduated in April 2017 from the BFA program in Interarts performance at the University of Michigan with a minor in creative writing. Sophie's interdisciplinary work explores concepts of miscommunication and community identity through writing, music, fibers, video, audio, visual communication, and movement.
Sophie’s artistic pursuits began with musical, graphic design, and dance. In high school, she dreamt of collaging her interests together. Since joining the Interarts program in 2013, Sophie has studied--both individually and collaboratively--across a breadth of creative processes, ranging from improvisational dance, to stop-motion animation, to printmaking, to full scale performance installation. She sees the conversational nature of ascending toward a shared artistic vision as an effective exercise in empathy, problem solving, and originality. She is an active member of the Call Your Mom performance collective, alongside four of her fellow classmates at Michigan, Emma Bergman, Mia Massimino, and E Cadoux. The collective has performed together since 2014--in the Duderstadt Video Studio, Argus Gallery, at the Ann Arbor Threads Festival, and across the U of M campus.
In the future, Goldberg hopes to utilize her artistic interests and skillsets to engage in public art and inform positive social change. She has experience with grant writing, teaching in a public school setting, presenting to a board, and facilitating conversational and movement-based workshops. She has interned at the Union for Contemporary Art in Omaha, at Omaha Performing Arts, and at the New Ohio Theatre Company in NYC.
